NEED FOR THE STUDY
Now-a-days customers are aware of what they get for the value paid. And they are wasting no time to get it. Gone are the days when one has to book the cars to arrive. Now it is the jet set age with people stopping at one of the showroom and finalizing the deal, model and the make before walking quietly away. Customers are looking for personalized services. It is not what showroom looks that make importance it is how many moments of truth can it provide to customers. These moments indicate the time each customer can get at every showroom which provide information facts and support while making this decision, it is just a relationship feel. Today customers not only chooses the best product for his requirement but also demands value for his money. The car showrooms also have undergone changes.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY
Customer satisfaction, a business term, is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer expectation.

These ten domains of satisfaction include: Quality, Value, Timeliness,
